When you press a key on your Universal Serial Bus (USB) keyboard, use a USB mouse, or use the computer's power button to resume your computer from standby (an S3 state), the first keystroke may be lost. Although subsequent key strokes wake the computer, these key strokes are passed along to the program that currently has focus.


When the computer wakes up from Standby mode by using a USB keyboard, the host controller driver may not preserve the data toggle bit. This may prevent the host controller from receiving correct data when the computer resumes from an S3 state.
